Found the problem (s) with Viking stuck on backstitch!!!
A: machine is "gummed-up" form old grease.
Solution: degrease machine with a high quality degreaser.. I used a spray electrical degreaser from an automotive store. Turn the machine up-side-down to preform this!
Then relubricate machine. Use a high quality sweing machine lubricant! Also lubricate the inner parts with a qigh quality "Sewing machine" oil.
B: Found that the return spring from foreward to backward was tired.
Soultion: Replace with slightly stronger spring from local hardware store.
If you need pictures, I took very detailed pictures of the reverse mechanism and "return to forward" spring.

Th cam stack gears have gummed up on you you can try getting the back cover off along with the side and soaking the machine down with wd-40 and running it while forcing the reverse button in and out if it breaks free try and soak up as much of the wd-40 as you can and then oil anything that moves. I know this may be discouraging but viking no longer supports this machine and you might be better off taking it to an older viking dealer for help.

SOURCE: Singer 4423 stuck on backstitch!
Is sewing machine set for buttonhole making? Sounds like it got "confused" in the process of a buttonhole revolution making a reverse stitch, and so you need to change adjustment settings top left, bottom right, remove extension table and turn feed dogs switch back left of machine to UP position.
Did this help?
